Our church celebrates freedom of belief and welcomes individuals and families of all backgounds and faiths. Unitarian Universalism does not advocate a particular creed. We come together because of our shared commitment to values and to ways of living, not to religious dogma. See “What Is UU?” for more about the long history and tradition of Unitarian Universalism.

The Strafford Universalist Society is the second oldest in Vermont and fourth oldest in the nation. Though the society was dormant for several years in the 1980s and 1990s, we are now growing again, meeting in the “new” church built in 1833 in South Strafford.We hope you will join us.



Sunday, August 6th, 10am. “Living Into Our Best Humanity” led by Rev. Telos Whitfield.
Summer might be the best season to feel abundant, to appreciate the growth and space around us and within moments, and to embrace the realities of our creativity and our humanity. We will hear words stories of wisdom and living to inspire us from writers and poets, gardeners and farmers as we remember what it means to live with compassion and happiness.


**Sunday, August 20th, 10:30am at the Barnard Unitarian Universalist Church –
“Summer Celebration with our UU Community!” We return again for our yearly
tradition of holding a service together hosted by the church in Barnard with our area UU congregations from Norwich, Hartland Four Corners, Barnard, Woodstock and Strafford!
We will gather for a summer worship service of words and singing, silence and sharing, with childcare and activities for children. Then we will gather for a Picnic at beautiful Silver Lake State Park just up the road. Bring your lunch or something to share, a lawn chair, bathing suit or frisbee, and hope you can attend this special day with our neighboring congregations. The Barnard UU church is the only one in Barnard, at the junction of North Road and Rt. 12, and there is parking at the boat launch or the store.
*Please Note: The Barnard church is not fully accessible and Doesn’t have a restroom. [There
are restrooms at the boat launch and local store we can use.]
